Celebrating the release of their new record, Emotional Creature, fan favorite pop-rock group Beach Bunny took the stage at Brooklyn Steel this past August 6th to showcase songs off the new release as well as additional hits off 2021’s Blame Game EP, and 2020’s full-length Honeymoon.
Beach Bunny is one of the rare bands that has been in my rotation for a while and I absolutely refuse to get tired of, and the new record didn’t disappoint even for a second. Songs like “Entropy”, and “Oxygen” were immaculate as well as captivating. The record came out as a sonically inventive, and thematically purposeful work of art. From the carefully written lyrics to the tight pop-rock instrumentals you can’t help but move a little but whenever you’re listening. The same held true for Honeymoon, from start to finish the album held not a single skip. I’m so happy I got to see the two albums and even songs from the Blame Game EP played out in a live setting. Beach Bunny impressed, and then some.
Beach Bunny’s performance in a live setting was another highlight, the group consistently engaged the crowd and you could feel the love in the room as the audience knew every single word to every single song. Very rarely do you ever feel the love in a big venue like Brooklyn Steel, love so powerful it makes the big venue feel so small, but Beach Bunny’s one of a kind connection to the audience through their project after project proof that they are one of a kind did just that.
Beach Bunny is a band I honestly am so passionate about, and am so happy I had the opportunity to come out and cover for my first ever show coverage. It was a privilege to share this memory with a band so important to me. Taking photos at Brooklyn Steel of the band was such a cool experience if you haven’t already, go stream their music or make it out to a show I couldn’t possibly recommend it any more.
You can stream Emotional Creature, and the rest of Beach Bunny’s catalog on all major streaming platforms, and tune in to hear them on WRSU New Brunswick this Fall and beyond.
